Great start, I have the same diecast (bought new some 25 years ago) and it is a bit boring and the wrong color white. I've often thought about "fixing" it, so will be interesting to see where this one goes.
Amazing. The only other 1:25 roll-down windows I can recall were on an '80s Mustang convertible built in the '80s. (perhaps by Jairus W.) Nothing so elaborate, I think it was thread wrapped around a sandpaper drum IIRC.
NASCAR cars aren't exactly pretty, and top fuel funnys and dragsters aren't in the Museum of Modern Art either. Everything for it's given purpose, and that Mustang's is to be partially obscured by clouds of tire smoke for entire videos.
Stunning, no other word. It's satisfying to see these modern, high-skill builds applied to vintage AMT, MPC, and Johan kits in a way that you never saw them built before. Who knew they could be so nice?
Praise be the breakers! I buy from a guy who breaks new kits, like 2 sets of 4x4 frame and running gear from the AMT Ford F-350 Firestone kits and a Revell Torino 429 CJ engine, and from another guy who breaks old kits, like a Johan Comet body. And neither of them are He Who's Name Shall Not Be Mentioned. I had a Johan Comet pro stock kit that was 100% complete except for the body, and that kit wouldn't have been much good without it. So I found that seller on ebay, and bought the body for something like 16 bucks. It's molded in weird Johan green instead of weird Johan blueish-green, but now it's complete!
